About the Lecture
While growth rate is high in Africa, the current account deficits are rising due to the strong dollar and undergrowth of the manufacturing sector. Would RMB bilateral currency swaps (BCS) be a solution? This presentation tries to present the current economic situation in Africa, and use Rwanda as a case to see a potential solution to current account deficit problems.
